There’s still time: defend NJ black bears
New Jersey’s black bears are very close to suffering a needless, cruel trophy hunt starting next Monday, Dec. 6. It’s more important than ever to keep calling on Governor Christie to cancel the hunt -- at this point, he’s the only one who can do so, and all it would take is an executive order.
Phone 609-292-6000. Ask to speak with a governor’s aide. Spell out the reasons against this hunt (mentioned here earlier and also available at www.APLNJ.org or www.SaveNJBears.com). Enlist friends and relatives to phone and do the same.
Attend the rally this Friday in Trenton to protest the hunt during working hours near the governor’s State House office. Friday, Dec. 3: 1-3 pm. Bring banners, posters, signs and noise-makers.
With questions or to RSVP, contact Edita Birnkrant, of Friends of Animals, one of the two groups (NJ's Heart for Animals is the other) behind this rally. Edita@FriendsOfAnimals.org or 212-247-8120 or Dustin Rhodes, at Dustin@FriendsOfAnimals.org, or 202-906-0210.
